You can get fabrics from dressmakers and wholesalers, at least in the U.K. you can. There's a couple of shops I go to that sell a huuuuge selection of all different kinds of materials, patterned and what not, so your best bet is to find a fabrics shop near you. However, I'm going to assume that's totally obvious and you've looked and are still struggling and make a leap that you're after the fancy patterned material. Try doing a search for "brocade fabric" or variations on that theme and see if you can find an online retailer with the stuff you want.
